Hi (I'm a website noob, so bear with me)
I'm learning how to make a website on word press and I need a domain.
On my plusnet account, under 'your .co.uk domain option' - I have an option to 'opt in', and 'register a .co.uk domain for an extra £1 per month'.
Before I sign up, I just want to confirm that this is the correct option for me, and it will enable to create a website using wordpress, using the www. address of my choice, and make it available to people over the internet.
Thanks in advance.

No idea what CCGI is but will look into it.
Is it possible that GoDaddy would be a cheaper option for me?
CCGI isn't something you can look into - it's plusnets own hosting service that allows server side scripts to be run.and used with a database. It used to be available to new customers on certain packages but PN withdrew it a long time ago and migrated existing customers CCGI accounts over to an external company. I think they still offer static hosting - but that only allows static html pages that do not "run".
000webhost offer free hosting but i don't think you can import your own domain (I could be wrong - been ages since i've logged into my account).
